Hope that makes sense
    Thanks! I understand it now

    Mine was the same amount on both sides until 10 weeks. Did the oil injections not pessaries.

    Wishing you a great outcome @Bizmak

    I saw Dr M yesterday for intralipids infusion, he said I’ll stay on progynova & progesterone the same amount until week 12, then I’ll have a blood test. He said I’ll stay on clexane for a lot longer probably 20 weeks or more.

    Sorry to jump in to the discussion. I'm so excited for everyone who is on their pregnancy journey and those embarking on their overseas trip. I am on the pill currently just to ensure my dates are on track with my donor. I have had bleeding for a week but have been assured it is normal. It has stopped now but my anxiety has escalated for the impending gravity of the cycle. I can't sleep with worry, I've been snapping at people and have had period pain like cramps. How do you all do this? And control yourself? The gravity of this being my final attempt is weighing on me greatly . My work has been full on and I've recently come off 7 days of being on call so I guess I'm also tired 😟☹☹ How do you control your anxiety? I was fine up until last month. I was even relaxed about the pill but when I started bleeding, I lost control!!!

    @Gymming hi lovely lady, ok so i dont have a magic solution but i can share a bit of my story with you and let you know you arent alone, this always helped me when other ladies did the same for me... might be a bit of a ramble but here goes...
    Firstly, it perfectly ok and normal to feel the way you are feeling. You are about to do something that really matters to you so its totally normal to feel the way that you do. I found my feelings were all over the place and i had no control over them, they would just come and go and hit me out of the blue at times i didnt expect. First time i went oseas i was excited and hopeful. Second time i went i had a countdown on my phone that i eagerly checked everyday for months, awaiting the big fly out day. Then the morning before I was supposed to leave, i woke up and said to dh, "i dont want to go any more. I better cancel my flights right now so i get some $ refunded". He looked shocked and said "but you've been waiting to go for ages and you wanted to go yesterday???" It waa so *** weird i scared myself that id gone completely insane. I literally had to call in sick to work and spent the whole entire day in bed just staring at the wall, just thinking, trying to understand what had happened to me. I decided not to cancel my flights because I couldnt understand why id changed my mind. Anyways, long story short, i just went through the motions of my journey like a robot and forced myself to just get on the plane. Third time I went, I felt strangely calm and at peace and I couldn't understand why I felt that way either.
    The point of all the above is, I have no idea why I felt the ways that I did or what I could have done about it. I think only that, its a big deal, it's scary, it's a massive gamble, its kind of a crazy unusual thing to do. Not many people at all have had to do what you are about to do and so there is no handbook or guidebook. Just a bubhub thread full of brave ladies just like you.

    Also, I tried to go easy in myself. As in, why should I feel calm and collected...iykwim. You, like me have probably.already been wanting a baby for ages, maybe gone through the grief and pain of repeated ivf failure and giving up on your own eggs. Thats a hell of a lot to have been through already to then add to this next step. It's not like you woke up yesterday and decided to take on this difficult thing. You've already been dealing with difficult stuff for years, not the least of which is just wanting a baby. So you are probably bone tired to the core of wanting something you havent gotten, thinking, researching, planning, taking meds, following procedures,, having operations and appointments etc etc etc.... Its enough to drive anyone insane, let alone just being snappy and impatient with people.
    Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself the same way you would treat someone else if you imagined they were sitting there, telling you the story if what you've been through and what you're about to do.

    Also, its ok to feel what you feel. Let it be. You dont have to be strong, "get it together" or feel or act a certain way. You just have to get on the plane, whatever mental state you're in. (Dont act too mental at the airport though or they might not let you on the flight🤣).
    No matter how crazy you feel youve become, you are still a brave and determined woman who is perservering in the face of suffering and that shows an incredibly noble and honourable human spirit. You havent given up and that's the most important thing.

    The only other thing I can think of atm, is that sometimes even with de ivf it can still take a few transfers to get a bfp. Not because there's anything wrong with you or your donor or the embies. Just sometimes it doesnt work first go. Same as any other normal fertile person. Statistically, after 3 double transfers 90% of ladies get an actual baby to take home. So the other thing that helped.me was to think that I may have to do this 3 times. After that though, my only plan was to fall apart and have a proper nervous breakdown. Many many many ladies get a bfp first go though, so the odds are in your favour this time.
    None of us have done this without feeling the same anxiety, even if some people are better at hiding it or keeping it all on the inside.
    I worried about every little thing. Missing my flight, missing my connection, donors cycle not going well, having no embies, my lining not being thick enough, mucking up my meds schedule, losing my meds, losing my luggae, losing my passport, not being able to find the clinic, arriving late for my appointment, my card not working at the oseas atm...(sorry if ive just given you a whole list of more things to worry about that you wouldn't have thought of if I hadnt mentioned them ) it was ridiculous of me but so what? I still went and did it anyway despite all the fear, so I did good and fought the good fight.
    I often felt that I should feel the same way about myself as I do about Olympians when i watch the Olympics. They dont always get the gold medal and win but bloody hell i admire all the years of early starts, hard work, giving up normal life and the determination it takes to simply get there in the first place and how scary it must be to put all that effort in for one shot at gold, years of pain for one moment in time. I admire all of them for simply being so determined and imagine how nervous and anxious they must be just before the gun goes off but, they get out there and just do it, give it their best shot even though there's no guarantee they will win or even finish the race. I admire all the participants whether they win or dont win or dont finish, simply being a part of it is worthy of the utmost admiration. If you get yourself on that plane, then you're an Olympian in my view xx
    Feel free to jump on the greece thread too and ask the ladies on there for their advice and suggestions and support too. xx

    My last transfer Dr M said to start 6 days before transfer, my last 2 failed transfers l was on progesterone 5 days before transfer. I don’t think the extra day made a difference.

    Hi all,

    Brand new here! We are looking at doing DE with CFC and I think I have just about picked my Donor through Nurture. We are looking at April. Is anyone else heading over then?

    We live really remotely in WA so I am not going to have access to a FS, just a GP (a non bulk billing one too :/) is that going to be ok? I received emails from Dr Matabese, does that mean she would be the Dr I am assigned? It seems like she's got glowing reviews.

    Thanks so much all! Excited to get started on this journey

    @Snappysarah welcome! Your GP is perfectly fine to use, just make sure they’re on board early and are happy to send you for tests and write your scripts.

    And Dr Matebese is lovely.

    It feels like yesterday that I was the newbie on this thread. I’ve just come off mat leave in fact and am tossing up whether I can afford a second baby.

    But all the best with everything. I wish you every success.

    Thank you @gorgeousgeorge xxx♥️♥️♥️x I had reached such a low point. I realised the gravity of what I was about to do and it overwhelmed me. Your thoughtful, insightful post made me cry with relief that I felt someone understood and could justify how I felt. At that point I felt so alone. I have not told work colleagues or friends the reason for my time off work or even that I was about to embark on such a long overseas journey. I'm not a good flyer so to be on a plane for that long was overwhelming. I've also struggled with finding any GP willing to help me. My fertility clinic here openly did not support my decision so I desperately tried another and was told that I could only go on to their egg donor waiting list. It's been such an uphill battle and at times like building a fragile deck of cards that is just teetering on collapsing. You ladies on here have been my saviours and for that I'm extremely grateful. 🙏🙏
    I went on the pill for this month only to prepare as I was very nervous that my regular cycle would be disrupted due to stress. I had a bleed about 2 weeks in. Stopped for about a week and then just started again. I have been assured that it is a part of normal but it just emotionally drained me over the last few days. To all of you ladies who have travelled this journey before me, you are incredibly strong and special in ways not many would understand. To those embarking on this adventure, strap yourself in and trust in the support you get from the women in this forum as I have relied on their advice and honesty more than ever. I'm set to have bloods over the next week to ensure I'm down regulated then the sniffing begins!!

    Just a question. I realise that others have used their accommodating GP for the needed scripts. I tried with 2 local fertility clinics and a few local southern Adelaide GP's and it felt like I was asking for black market goods! One doctor even asked me if this process was legal ☹😟😭
    I'm worried that if I need to go back to Cape Town for frozen cycles, I won't be able to acquire the correct medication. Has anyone used a fertility specialist or obstetrician etc that is open to donor embryo transfers overseas?.
    Similarly, has anyone had any experience getting the CFC doctors to prescribe the initial down reg drugs like syneral and bring them back to Australia? Sorry for so many questions 😞😞
